(Boulder, CO) – Outdoor Industry Association (OIA) is excited to bring the 2016 Rendezvous to Colorado, home of OIA and a major hub for the outdoor industry and outdoor recreation from September 26 – 28, 2016. Registration is open and space is limited. Rendezvous offers education, networking and industry insight from luminaries of policy, participation and sustainability.

The outdoor industry has always fought hard to keep the values that originated with the birth of our industry alive. Getting people outside, protecting the places where we recreate, competition and collaboration, creating innovative gear and building communities with a passion for the outdoors are all so important to us. This year’s educational tracks provide quality content and interaction for all OIA members and partners. Whatever your place in the industry, we need your voice. At Rendezvous we’ll provide you with learning opportunities to make a difference in your business and community, helping contribute to a healthy outdoor economy.

“This year’s Rendezvous tackles the most pressing opportunities and challenges the industry faces today,” said Amy Roberts, OIA executive director. “Convening the industry, giving back through our always popular Timberland sponsored service project, presenting great speakers like Colorado Governor Hickenlooper and events like a concert at the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre contribute to a stellar attendee experience.”
